  • Congenital Contractural Arachnodactyly

    contractural arachnodactyly Macleod-Fraser syndrome: An inherited connective tissue disorder characterized by long thin fingers and contractures involving the knees, elbows[checkorphan.org] congenital contractural deformities of the knees and elbows.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] contractures at knees, elbows, fingers, and sometimes other joints.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Connective Tissue Disease

    It is akin to Marfan syndrome but with contractures of hip, knee, elbows and ankle joint and crumpled ear.[en.wikipedia.org] Congenital contractural arachnodactyly – Also known as Beals syndrome.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Marfan Syndrome

    It is characterized by multiple flexion contractures (especially elbow, knee, and finger joints), arachnodactyly, severe kyphoscoliosis, crumpled pinnae, and muscular hypoplasia[dermaamin.com] Mutations in the FBN2 gene on chromosome 5q23 can result in an AD disorder that resembles neonatal Marfan syndrome, especially in its skeletal manifestations—congenital contractural[dermaamin.com]

  • Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita

    These joint contractures develop before birth (prenatally) and are evident at birth (congenitally); and, WHEREAS , joints that can be affected by AMC include the hands, feet[michigan.gov] The syndrome, which is present at birth, is expressed mainly by flexion and extension contractures of the knees and elbows, with muscle weakness around the involved joints[pediatrics.aappublications.org] , hips, knees, elbows, shoulders, wrists, fingers, toes, the jaw and the spine.[michigan.gov]

  • Neurogenic Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita

    […] by congenital contractures at the elbows and knees, myopathy, absence of muscle spindles, congenital heart disease and spinal motor nueron depletion that has material basis[malacards.org] The syndrome, which is present at birth, is expressed mainly by flexion and extension contractures of the knees and elbows, with muscle weakness around the involved joints[pediatrics.aappublications.org] Affiliated tissues include heart , spinal cord and skin , and related phenotypes are joint stiffness and short nose Disease Ontology : 12 A nervous system disease characterized[malacards.org]

  • Kuskokwim Disease

    Affected individuals usually, but not always, have congenital contractures of large joints (especially knees and/or elbows) and spinal, pelvic, and foot deformities.[diseaseinfosearch.org] Arthrogryposis-like disorder; Kuskokwim syndrome; Arthrogryposis-like syndrome; Bruck syndrome-1 See More Categories: Kuskokwim disease is a congenital (present at birth) contracture[rarediseases.info.nih.gov] Get Update Overview Kuskokwim disease is a congenital (present at birth) contracture disorder that occurs solely among Yup'ik Eskimos in and around the Kuskokwim River delta[diseaseinfosearch.org]

  • Arthrogryposis due to Muscular Dystrophy

    There are several types of pterygium syndrome, although people with the conditions many times have webs of skin at their knees, elbows, neck, and experience multiple congenital[disabled-world.com] Contractures (tightness) in the joints – the ankles, hips, knees and elbows – are also common. The contractures are sometimes severe and affect several joints.[mda.org.au] The dominant features are hypermobility and congenital dislocations of multiple joints: hips, knees, and elbows.[slideshare.net]

  • Kyphoscoliosis

    Major criteria are: Congenital muscle hypotonia, and/or muscle atrophy, that improves with age; Proximal joint contractures (knee, hip and elbow); and Hypermobility of distal[ehlers-danlos.com]

  • Mixed Connective Tissue Disease

    It is akin to Marfan syndrome but with contractures of hip, knee, elbows and ankle joint and crumpled ear.[en.wikipedia.org] Congenital contractural arachnodactyly – Also known as Beals syndrome.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy

    Distribution Flexion: IP joints medial 4 fingers, wrists, elbows, ankles Proximal: Pectorals, Knees, Shoulders, Hips Truncal Congenital: Torticollis Disease progression:[neuromuscular.wustl.edu] Restrictive lung disease correlates with weakness & contractures Spine Dorsiflexion contractures at ankles in COL6A2 (G250S) mutation Course After birth: Often spontaneously[neuromuscular.wustl.edu] […] improve Joints: Some are initially hypermobile May develop contractures over time Childhood & Adult: May progress independent of weakness Some patients in families may never[neuromuscular.wustl.edu]
